fantastic finishing chest exercise. Informational purposes. Not specific advice for you.
This is an isolation exercise which means the pectoral is primarily the only muscle working to move the weight. I like this exercise to help add a pump to or exhaust my chest towards the end of a workout. I try to both stress the muscle with intensity and heavy weights and then pump the muscle as the workout progresses.
Although I typically like to do heavy compound movements at the start of a workout, I will sometimes “pre-exhaust” my chest with an exercise like this first. In this workout video I have the weights up high and I am pulling forward and down which will tend to target the lower chest.
This is an isolation exercise so form is typically a little more important than heavy weight. It can be tempting to move your body or use some other kind of momentum stop the deltoid from doing the work.
Form & Safety
As always form and safety is extremely important. Injury is always possible. I have been doing movements like this for 26 years and adding weight is natural for me. Use caution and consult professionals. But keep in mind rule 2! Intensity is one of the rules I have lived by for over 26 years.

I have kept lean and athletic for over 26 years by creating a demand for calories and eating sensibly. Working muscle, growing muscle and sustaining muscle all take calories! With a sensible diet, the extra calorie demand allows me to burn off calories that might otherwise be stored as fat.
